With this activity, students will practice factoring trinomials, including by removing the GCF. After they identify the factors, they will color the mandala according to the color indicated for the factors (or GCF, as specified in the directions). When the students are done, the finished pieces make beautiful classroom decor and allow you to showcase your students' coloring, and algebra, skills!
This activity is an excellent resource for sub plans, enrichment/reinforcement, early finishers, and extra practice with some fun. It is especially useful for end-of-year practice, spiral review, and motivated practice when students are exhausted from standardized testing or mentally "checked out" before a long break (hello summer!). Teachers and students alike enjoy motivating activities, so engage your students today with this fun color by number activity!
